    It's more than just an election. Napoleon believed his army could defeat Russia in the Patriotic War of 1812, his greatest defeat and at the cost of over 500,000 men. Believe it or not, Trump's superiority complex and strong stance on China might just have been a repeat of history.

    Napoleon kept pursuing endless wars;
    He sold more than half the United States (Louisiana Purchase) more than doubled USA; to fund a war(s) he LOST
    (Napoleon lost Russia, Britain Wars))

    Never seen a bigger loser, admired;
    Napoleon is nothing like Trump.
    Trump wins bigly; withdraw troops from areas we have no business being.
    Why our troop AFGHANISTAN? O_o Iraq?

    Stop ENDLESS WARS!!

    Yes, Napoleon funded his army by selling foreign land (Indian territory). He eventually lost those wars because he spread his troops too thin, just like Hitler thinking he could dominate the world.

    I ask you, who started the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Republican, Bush. Regroup and reinforce a main front against the imagined enemy would be one reason I can suggest that you don't want to hear, he was just waiting for a second term to get all his ducks in a row.

    Trump attacks on China saying coronavirus was Beijing's fault and warned the country of paying a "big price" for it. "It was China's fault, and China is going to pay a big price for what they've done to this country."

    Just like Mexico was going to pay for the WALL, lol, what a joke! :xf.laugh::ROFL::xf.laugh:

    I ask you, Who is living the good life while regular and poor folk pay the price? Where do you think endless wars start and who makes the choice? The chosen rhetoric and scenario those in power would have you believe have power over otherwise peace loving people that creates the dissonance that perpetuates animosity, then the dumb followers pay the dues for their ENDLESS WARS.

    Would Trump have dismantled the military? I doubt it, that would have dismantled HIS American Dream.

    I guess that new Supreme Court pick is paying off, in a 5-4 decision, she voted to kill more Americans. Would Jesus be pleased?

    Hooked on phonics - learn to read with Joe Biden:)
    "If you didn't vote for me you are a patriot":)
    Biden probably is not a stupid person but he is in cognitive decline.
    People who voted for Biden, probably are:)

    "To solve the problem of growing anti-war sentiment in Western Europe, the agency devised two primary solutions: 1) exploit the plight of Afghan women to tug on the heartstrings of the Germans and French and try to persuade them — particularly European women — that the war in Afghanistan was really some sort of humanitarian project to help people, not a geo-strategic effort to control the region and its resources; and 2) use the popularity among Europeans of President Obama, now a Nobel Peace Prize winner, to put a pretty, sophisticated, cosmopolitan face on the war in place of the hardened Evangelical Texan swagger that George W. Bush represented.
    [​IMG]
    But none of this would have worked, in the CIA’s estimation, without having a President who could effectively use his popularity abroad to sell the war not as a barbaric act of endless aggression but as a humanitarian gesture that — like the President himself — was benevolent, noble, and kind. As a result of their positive views of Obama, the agency concluded, the French and Germans would not only “be receptive to [Obama’s] direct affirmation of their importance to the [Afghanistan] mission” — that would be the positive reinforcement — but would also be “sensitive to [his] direct expressions of disappointment in allies who do not help.”

    In other words, Obama was like a kind but righteous father whose nobility you believed in even when it came to bombing villages and shooting up schoolyards, and whose moral disappointment (you’re not living up to your duties as an ally) you were eager to avoid. Polling data thus showed that when Europeans were reminded that Obama supported the war in Afghanistan, support increased significantly:

    Everyone has a dark side, even presidents. Obama's war record stands, like a score card in golf.

    Trump on the other hand, wouldn't waste time with the little fish, he'd go BIG!!

    Race riots, protest, shopping at walmart, casinos, strip clubs, street parties, public defecation, urination don't spread the china-virus; Churches do! - JB Lyons.
    Maybe you should take 5 minutes to read the separate decent Justice Roberts wrote. He voted against because NY had already rescinded the restrictions on religious worship. It's disappointing Roberts didn't send a clear message, our Bill of Rights isn't nullified by a virus.

    Jewish and Catholic congregations didn't sue for special treatment. They only asked to be treated fairly, with the same restriction written for secular gatherings.

    From majority opinion:

    What a openly ignorant and hateful statement.

    Maybe the SoS should have protected the election process instead of caving to corrupt progressives.

    Election rules are determined by the legislature, not the SoS or local courts.

    I say let the evangelicals gather. Let them spread the virus amongst themselves. Let them suffer the consequences of their decisions. It's the American way.

    I wonder how you'd "feel" if the discrimination was based on race instead of religion.

    The law suit was asking for the same treatment as secular gatherings. Gov. Cuomo singled out religious worship with very harsh restrictions.

    Not just evangelicals which you seem to hate, Muslims, Catholics, Jews, Buddhist, etc.

    Take my words for what they are. I said let them gather. I think it's dangerous but it's their right. Everybody is a victim these days.

    By the way, there is discrimination based on race.
